The Jeffersons is the beloved sitcom that aired 11 seasons on CBS (1975 to 1985). The historic family comedy focused on an African American household, the "Jeffersons," who originally appeared on All in the Family before launching their own spin-off. The show was also groundbreaking for featuring the interracial "Willis" couple, who were main cast members for all 11 seasons along with "George" (Sherman Hemsley) and "Louise Jefferson" (Isabel Sanford). The Jeffersons has been off the air for 35 years now — but what became of the stars? Click through this gallery to find out who is still surviving today and where they are now.
"Jefferson" family patriarch "George" was played by actor Sherman Hemsley for every episode of The Jeffersons. His family began as neighbours to the "Bunkers" on All in the Family, before leading their highly successful sitcom for another 11 seasons.
